TT history showcased in new exhibition

Racing Lines features icons artefacts

The history of one of the world's most iconic motorsport events is being showcased at a new exhibition at the Manx Museum.

Racing Lines has items from the TT spanning the decades, including a BMW sidecar from the 1970s, leathers worn by David Jefferies, and a memorial urn for a German rider killed during the so-called Nazi TT in 1939.

It's essentially a preview of a new permanent TT exhibition scheduled to open in 2020.

Curator Matthew Richardson says it covers more than just machinery:

The exhibition is on display at the Manx Museum daily until early September.
